Seth David Radwell is the author of the Amazon bestselling book, American Schism: How the Two Enlightenments Hold the Secret to Healing Our Nation. He discusses his experience as a marketing executive and student of public policy and what concerns him about the strength of our democracy.  He shares insights from his research around fighting unreason with reason with a historical view back to the Enlightenment and how those earlier divisions in our history are still part of the US political landscape.

We talk about:

  • The conflicting views of the Moderates and the Radicals during Enlightenment that are still influencing the discussions and laws regarding the role of government and the rights of citizens
  • What role do private-sector business leaders have in helping heal the American Schism and how should they decide which public policy issues to confront? How risky is it for them to stay silent?
  • The counter-Enlightenment and the age of Trumpism
  • How technology and digital media has changed the power of the government
  •  Whether highly partisan elected officials accurately represent the values of their constituents
  • The impact of the pandemic and war in Ukraine on partisanship in the US
  • What can be done to bring the reasonable exchange of ideas back to political discourse and how we talk to each other
